I was gleefully driving home on the Garden State Parkway the other day, celebrating the closing of a major deal with a double corona. A car drove adjacent to mine with the driver frantically vying for my attention. He was also smoking a fine one. We exchanged repeated salutes, pulled into the next rest area, traded cigars and stories and ended up discussing a possible deal.
Congratulations on a wonderful innovative publishing idea whose time certainly was overdue. Cigar smoking is a wonderful avocation. Much to my delight, it is also profitable.

You have by now received my subscription to your magazine. It is a great magazine except for one problem: There should be some sort of warning label, such as there is on tobacco products, affixed to the front cover. The reason is that when I received my latest issue, I took it off to my den, selected one of my best Havanas and sat down to enjoy both my cigar and my magazine. As I read, I became so involved in every page that I read it from cover to cover. When I had finished, it dawned on me that I had also finished my Havana, but for the life of me I could not remember when or how I had enjoyed it. I looked at what was left in the ashtray and considered legal action or tears. On further consideration I decided the price had not been too much for the pleasure I received from the magazine. However, I think in all fairness to your readers, my idea of a warning label should be considered, i.e. Reading this magazine may affect your ability to pay attention to anything else.
Thanks for a great magazine.
